LSU RB Hill announces he will enter NFL Draft

The Sports NetworkJanuary 13, 2014 

Baton Rouge, LA (SportsNetwork.com) - LSU running back Jeremy Hill announced on Twitter Monday that he will enter the 2014 NFL Draft.

"I am a Tiger for life. I will forever be grateful to my LSU fans, friends, coaches and family. This decision has been very difficult for me," Hill posted on his Twitter account before announcing his decision to go pro.

The news contradicts reports that Hill was planning on staying in school.

Hill rushed for 1,401 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2013, despite missing one game and part of another at the beginning of the season after being suspended for his second arrest. He rushed for a career-high 216 yards and two touchdowns in LSU's win over Iowa in the Outback Bowl.

As a freshman in 2012, Hill led the Tigers with 755 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns.

In addition, guard Trai Turner has reportedly decided to enter the draft.
